Thanks, Spylocked is now gone from my computer but I have another problem. In Add/Remove programs there is a Windows Safety Alert icon that says its taking up ALOT of space. I was wondering how to remove it, and if this in some way connected to Spylocked. When I try to remove it, it has an error and it says Error Loading C:\WINDOWS/SYSTEM32/pkgvyg.dll The specified module cannot be found. Any help would be greatly appreciatd.

Yes, that is a Spylocked leftover. It is always good to run Super Antispyware to cleanup and remove other malware that
very often accompanies Smitfraud malware. After running Super Antispyware and it is still in Add/Remove, that reference can be removed with one of the tools in Ccleaner.

Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Remove temporary files, logs, cookies, etc. by using Ccleaner. Do not use "Advanced Settings" or the "Issues" button. Use only the default settings. http://www.ccleaner.com/

Turn off system restore. This will remove all restore points since some are infected . Turn system restore back on.

Ccleaner will remove any files you have in temporary files. If you have documents you are working on and have not moved from temporary, or offline content that you have on your desktop do that before running Ccleaner. You may just be seeing the log entries for recent documents you have viewed. That doesn't remove the documents, just cleans one of the history logs of viewed documents.

More info: Concerning "You may just be seeing the log entries for recent documents you have viewed." To verify that is what you are seeing after scanning with Ccleaner, uncheck "recent Documents" in the list under Windows Explorer and run another scan.
